    Extractions from FSX

    Following these forums is like having a real adventure from my armchair.

    I am attempting to build a simulator similar to this
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c_wKAnFjofo

    It looks like the chair itself is the pitch motion. I am most interested in the lift and gravity..... and heave? Such as bouncing down the runway, hitting turbulence, and such. Could you advise me where I would extract this from FSX?

    One other thought. Finding the definition of "heave" is a bit illusive. And what would be the opposite of heave?

    You folks are so generous with your time and advice. Thank you
    Terry

    Re: Extractions from FSX

    That's quite a mission you are going for Terry.

    Have a look at these sites to get info on motion platforms ,,,
    http://www.x-sim.de/forum/portal.php
    http://www.simprojects.nl/
    http://bffsimulation.com/software.php
    and we even have a forum slot here at mycockpit that the motion Guys all watch so maybe it's best to post the questions there ,,,,
    http://www.mycockpit.org/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=76

    There are other ones but they are the main ones that come to mind.

    If you want to "roll your own" then my "Multi" program actually extracts all the data that you need for a motion platform and all you need to do is send the required data to a second computer or a PLC and sort it all out in that one ,, however ,,,, how to actually process that information would probably send you back to the above sites or with your own research. (It gets quite complex)

    Cheers and good luck ,, Jim

    Re: Extractions from FSX

    Thank you Jim. I'm in awe with how you took an extremely complex program, and made it so even a fossil like me can understand it. I had dozens of bookmarks where I was trying to understand the creature, and when I saw your craftwork, I cleaned them all out except for yours. And of course Arduino. I even learned how to say it properly.
    Best Regards
    Terry
